A photograph to inspire poetry: green berries

green berries

Above is a photograph of green berries.  It can inspire poetry.

First, the berries are unripe.  This idea could lead a poet to write about something that isn’t finished.

Second, the berries may be poisonous.  This idea could lead a poet to write about the idea of potential danger.

Third, the berries are in a group.  This idea could lead a poet to write about groups of things.

Fourth, the berries are round.  This idea could lead a poet to write about things that are round.

Here is an example poem:

the round bottles stood
upon the table
each half filled
with something green
